    SEO question on the title of my homepage

    Hello,

    I've been trying to find an answer to this question, but I've been unsuccessful. Hopefully somebody here can help me out, please. I am working on the title of my homepage and I came up with the following.

    " POS Widgets.com | Samples and tutorials on piece of ship widgets "

    My question is this. Do search engines see 'POS Widgets' or do they see 'POS Widgets.com'? Note that there is a space between POS & Widgets.com. Help me figure this out please. Thank you.

    I think Google crawler will see it as "POS Widgets.com"

    You can change it to 'POS Widgets' for better exposure. And If you have problem with the uniqueness of it then go for three phrase keyword like 'POS Widgets XYZ'

    Google will see both. It's clever enough to distinguish between the entire string and the constituent parts.

    That said, is there any point in adding the ".com"? Would someone who is searching for a POS widget include ".com" in their search term? Even if they do, Google will still find it if it's the same as your URL.

    Regarding the string "Samples and tutorials on piece of ship widgets". That doesn't make any sense to me.

    Don't add dot com to the title.
    1. It looks naf.
    2. It has no advantages and possible disadvantages

    If ranking is important to you, you should upgrade your knowledge before you go any further; you seem to be missing some elementary understanding of the basics. David Amersham's seo books are a good start.

    I dont think you should be including ".com" in your title tag. Title tag should always be a one liner that describes your product best.

    Hello,

    You use " POS Widgets.com | Samples and tutorials on piece of ship widgets "

    Here Google looks both, if visitor wants to search POS Widgets.com then google may be showing your site link or showing for POS Widgets only.
    but Samples and tutorials on piece of ship widgets it doesn't make any sense.
